A Monk’s Guide to a Clean House and Mind by Shoukei Matsumoto

A Monk’s Guide to a Clean House and Mind by Shoukei Matsumoto
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 56 MB
Overview: Little known fact: Buddhist Monks are amazing at cleaning and tidying. In this one-of-a-kind guide to cleaning your home, Buddhist monk Shoukei Matsumoto reveals how to make your home as spotless as it is tranquil and peaceful.
For Buddhist monks, cleaning well is a cardinal skill and, in A Monk’s Guide to a Clean House and Mind, listeners will discover their never-before-shared cleaning pro tips. In the Zen Buddhist tradition, true enlightenment is impossible if your home has even a speck of dust, and, as such, Buddhist monks have much to teach us lay people about achieving a truly Zen clean.
A Monk’s Guide to a Clean House and Mind features step-by-step instructions on such essential household cleansing tips as:
First, Air It Out: Before cleaning anything, monks first open the temple windows to purify the air and let the crisp morning breeze in.
Don’t Procrastinate: "Zengosaidan" is a Zen expression meaning that one should put all their efforts into each day, so they have no regrets. In the context of cleaning, this means don’t put off cleaning those dishes you’ve left in the sink.
Remember to Put On Your Samue: Samue robes are worn by Japanese monks when they perform their daily duties of cleaning and looking after the temple. Easy to move in and to wash and care for, they are the perfect cleaning attire.
From cleaning up everything from your kitchen sink, toilet, and that pile of unidentified stuff in the corner of your garage to your mind, body, and spirit, this book will guide you in creating a home environment that will calm your thoughts and nourish your soul.
Genre: Audiobooks > Non-Fiction

Get Your House Right by Marianne Cusato

Get Your House Right: Architectural Elements to Use & Avoid by Marianne Cusato, Ben Pentreath, Richard Sammons, Leon Krier
Requirements: EPUB Reader 9.91 MB
Overview: Even as oversized McMansions continue to elbow their way into tiny lotsnationwide, a much different trend has taken shape. This return to traditional architectural principles venerates qualities that once were taken for granted in home design: structural common sense, aesthetics of form, appropriateness to a neighborhood, and even sustainability. Marianne Cusato, creator of the award-winning Katrina Cottages, has authored and illustrated this definitive guide to what makes houses look and feel right-to the eye and to the soul.
She teaches us the language and grammar of classical architecture, revealing how balance, harmony, and detail all contribute to creating a home that will be loved rather than tolerated. And she takes us through the do’s and don’ts of every element of home design, from dormers to doorways to columns. Integral to the book are its hundreds of elegant line drawings-clearly rendering the varieties of lintels and cornices, arches and eaves, and displaying “avoid” and “use” versions of the same elements side by side.
Genre: Non-Fiction – General

Lebanon: A House Divided by Sandra Mackey

Lebanon: A House Divided by Sandra Mackey
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 0.70 Mb
Overview: With a new introduction by the author, a seminal study of Lebanon’s past, present, and future.
With the West’s economic and security interests increasingly at stake in the Middle East, it is impossible to ignore Lebanon―a nation in all ways divided and tormented by the interplay between the West and the Arab world. Sandra Mackey delineates the multifarious culture that is Lebanon; carefully stripping away the complex stigmas of Lebanese politics, she brings each component into focus, priming readers on the conflicts between Sunni and Shia, Maronites and Druze, Christian and Muslim, Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization, Lebanon and Palestine, and Syria and Lebanon.
Covering Lebanon’s history through the civil war of 1975­89, and with a new introduction on recent developments, Mackey lays the groundwork needed to comprehend this often ill-understood country―offering insight into its role as the gateway between West and East, and bringing clarity of focus to the schisms that serve to divide and define Lebanon.
Genre: Non-Fiction > General
